Wisconsin State Flower The Wood Violet

Wild violets (Viola papilionacea) grow in deep purple and medium and light bluish-purple colors near woodland edges, scrub areas, and even city lawns. I grow a patch along the side of my home to make wild violet jelly and for making bath salts.

For this recipe you could very well use purchased, dried flowers if you wish, but if you can locate them free, all the better, right?



1.) Remove stems from violets

2.) Pulse 1/2 cup sea salt, 1/4 Himalayan pink salt, and 3/4 cup violets in a blender to a fine texture. 

3.) Add a few droppers of lavender essential oil. Mix and smell. Stop adding the oil when you like the scent. The mixture should be pale pinky purple. 

4.) Spread mixture on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and leave to dry overnight.

5.) Place salt in a jar and cover.
